Really? Are you sure? It was in the late sixties when I saw it. It wasn't a pilot.

It was a broadcast in 1966 on the Armstrong Circle Theatre;
that's how far I got. No under the age of 40 knows what @#$%^ I am talking about.

I read about that TV special. Wikipedia says it's never been on VHS, DVD or repeated. What that means as far as copyright is concerned, I don't know.

Seems rather odd it only showed once with 6 emmy nominations for one 90 minute spot on Armstrong Circle Theatre.

It is on Youtube in case anyone wants to watch it, so that'll be the only place to get it from if it is PD.

Looks like one on You Tube is of good quality too,think will grab it.Thought Armstrong Circle Theater was off the air by 1966,must have still been putting on occasional specials though.

It's not of bad quality, there's that transparent jump at the bottom that you get from really old VHS tapes, but it's very, very minor.

Coolio, I hope it is PD, it needs to be archived before You Tube removes it with a false copyright claim.

According to a Guy I spoke to on the IMDB messageboards who worked as a sound engineer for ABC, the original negative for this was destroyed, and it only exists on a tape that someone made.

Yea,thats why am getting it now,before it might be yanked.Only one thing about it that dont like,the segments end in the middle of a scene,so there may be a few glitches in finished product.

That, unfortunately, is the problem with YouTube stuff. I wish it was on VHS or something.

By the Way, is your name a reference to the horror actor, Dwight Frye?

Jon, when you say it is on you tube, do you just type in Brigadoon? Since it was basically a one shot deal, I'm guessing the film or portions of the film will come up instead of the TV special.
BTB, if anyone finds out the status of it, could they just yank it off you tube and put it here?

Just type Brigadoon 1966, and it should come up.

I found it and am downloading it now. I'm kind of a newbie at converting video, but if nobody else puts it up (and if it's PD, of course) I'll see what I can do.

Well, I downloaded the pieces as MP4s and am now merging them together in MPEG Steamclip. I don't know how it will turn out; I'm using my work computer and haven't had a chance to play the clips yet.

The MP4 I'm generating currently is scaled up so I can make a DVD of it. I think that's expanding the file size rather badly as well. I made an AVI of it earlier and it came out over 8 Gig. (And then wouldn't burn to DVD on my software. There's a couple of hours I'll never get back.) If I make one for upload I probably shouldn't scale it, right?

Has a determination been made as to whether it's PD or not? It seems a shame for this film to go to waste, but I wouldn't want the Archive to get in trouble either.

Okay, it's uploaded to Open Source Movies and being derived even as I type. I didn't have a chance to do more than just play the first bit, but the software I used seems to have fused the nine parts pretty neatly. There are several seconds of black screen after the opening commercial, as if someone stopped the recording to skip the ad. I don't know if that holds true for the rest of the show.

I'm a little concerned about the copyright status on this. If you look at the last gif in the thumbnails, it shows a copyright 1966 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. But at IMDb I don't see anywhere that MGM had its hands on this production. It does list it as a ROGO production, which appears to refer to Robert Goulet. (The other shows produced under that name all star him as well.) How does MGM come by a copyright claim on this?
